According to new a report from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, Apple’s iPhone 6 may come as early as August this year. The report cites anonymous sources from Apple’s supply chain, who claim that the 4.7-inch variant of the iPhone 6 will be released in August, while the larger 5.5-inch model will launch a month later in September.
According to a new report from Financial Times, Apple is currently in the final stages of acquiring Beats Electronics (makers of Beats headphones and Beats Music streaming service) for $3.2 billion. This would be Apple’s largest acquisition of another company ever.
A new patent application by Apple was published today, showing off a new method of producing “super-resolution” images using optical image stabilization (OIS). This new technology would allow future iPhones to take images with higher resolutions than what the camera hardware is limited to.
The lead engineer behind Apple’s iMessage, FaceTime, and Push Notifications has just left the company to become CTO of a startup company named Layer. The new company is working to create an easy way for developers to add messaging, voice and video features to their applications. Andrew Vyrros announced his departure and explained why he left Apple in a company blog post:
If you’ve been keeping up with the smartphone world lately, you’ve probably already heard about the up and coming smartphone maker, One Plus. The new company has already had quite some controversy surrounding them since they first announced their first flagship phone, the One Plus One.ZZ
One Plus held a “Smash the Past” contest where people applied to destroy their current smartphones in exchange for a One Plus One. 100 contestants were chosen, getting access to the first 100 One Plus Ones for only $1.

The last couple of months have been filled with exciting iPhone 6 rumors and mock-ups. Most of the recent renders we’ve seen suggest that the next generation iPhone will have a larger screen and rounded corners. Well, the new photos we have for you today are no different…
Schemantics supposedly meant for case makers of the iPhone 6 have 'leaked'. Now we absolutely no idea whether or no these are legit so just enjoy using your imagination for a moment and pretending they're the real deal, besides who knows, they really could be. Check out the next page for another image released from a seperate rumor factory and my take on them. With the power button being moved to the side of the device, and the lack of the dual flash option, plus the size to handle a 4.7" screen, it's hard to tell you what we are looking at.
The newest rumors and pics have just arrived and they're, as always, totally drool worthy. So yesterday I posted about some rounded backplates similar to those of the iPod Touch line, you can check out that article here. But these new images are actually more attractive than yesterday's mock-ups in my opinion, by curving the display around the edges you reduce the width of the bezel allowing a larger screen to fit on a smaller device. The last thing I want Apple to do is create a phablet. A thinner phone I'm fine with cause that leaves more space for a nice case to wrap around it, but wider and taller is a no-go for me. Check out the next page for some more images, as well as a few more boisterous opinions from yours truly.
